Provides a Wonderful Al Fresco Dining Experience
To be sure there are differences and simple things like having placemats on the outdoor tables at breakfast and lunch would be an improvement as would having more than one bar steward.
After dinner it was up to the Star Bar for a nightcap. It is, by the way, the only location where one can smoke a cigar.
|Sailing under a full moon on the Windstar Star Pride|
While I appreciate this was a substitute port, four hours on a bus for a quick spin around a small museum, a visit to another mosque, a stroll along a small riverfront and a lunch was a miss. I would have preferred enjoying the Star Pride for the day...but I am not so unappreciative as to not recognize that I have been to a place that few have been to and had the opportunity to be educated for a second day by a truly wonderful guide; courtesy of Windstar.
